    A Lot Of Fun To Drive — I bought my focus brand new in 04 and I love it! I have almost 200000 miles on it and it still runs like the day I bought it. It handles great in snow. I love the fact that it is easy on gas. Not crazy about the looks of it but everything else is great! It is alot of fun to drive. I have the zts model and it has lots of get up and go.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: everything but the looks of it

    Cons: the looks of the car

    Affordable And Over-all A Good Vechicle — Performs well, handles fairly well in the snow. Build quality is good, only needs regular routine maintenance, appearance is fair...there is something strange about the looks of focus' even the newer ones, excellent gas mileage, low maintenance, priced right, not so much fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: safe and reliable

    Cons: bad door handles

    Focus — The ford focus is a very versatile car it can be anything you want it to be from an every day run around to a modded performance vehicle. Very good car overal, easy to mod, looks good, good handling front wheel drive car, needs a little more power but thats just a personal opinion and you can always get more power with a few mods ;)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: fun to drive, good handling, looks great

    Cons: Very few, needs a little more power but thats just a personal opinion

    Focus St170 — Performance wise it is quite quick off the mark and still accelerates quite well in 4th and even 5th gear. The braking is also extremely good on it and works a treat. Handing is a strange one, occasionally the front end can feel really light which can make it not feel the best in wet conditions. Build quality is mainly quite good also. The appearance is of a semi-sports hatch back, however at the same time I don't feel it differentiates itself from the standard Focus enough to make it really stand out.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Acceleration, reliability, cost of parts

    Cons: Depreciation

    Good, Conservative Transportation That Will Have Fun If You Ask It To. — I like it, but I definitely don't love it. The 2.3L I4 is nice, and peppy, and amazing on gas, and feels like it will run forever; the rest of the car feels like budget plastic. Handling is European--a good thing. The sedan body style is lame, but I like a Focus in a 3- or 5-door hatch. I'd be thrilled if they'd bring the European convertible over.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Easy on gas; peppy; an engine with longevity; handling

    Cons: Build quality
